“We’re excited to acquire Jim’s firm and expand our presence in the Fort Collins market,” Al said. “Our firm’s values align with each other, and we saw a valuable opportunity to better serve our clients in the Fort Collins area and help others benefit from our winning formula for success. We are proud of our top rank within the Transworld network, which is a testament to the expertise and dedication of our team.”
The acquisition by the operators and their partners (collectively, The Prospere Companies) further solidifies their position as No. 1 among more than 350 global locations of Transworld Business Advisors for seven consecutive years.
“I am both proud and excited to announce that Colorado Business Exchange is joining forces with Transworld Business Advisors of Colorado,” said DeShayes. “This union represents a synergy of values, commitment, and expertise. Together, we’ll further our dedication to serving the vibrant business community of Colorado, ensuring that both sellers and buyers experience unparalleled support.”
Al, who serves as president of The Prospere Companies, and Jessica, who chairs the board of directors and manages all partner relations, opened their first Transworld location ten years ago in Colorado. Since then, the franchise operators have experienced phenomenal success in brokering business sales and were recently named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing businesses for the fifth time, a feat only 4% of businesses have achieved since 1982.
Al and Jessica Fialkovich have completed over 900 deals in the last decade and closed more than 50% of all transactions in Colorado.
